The Healing Power of Writing

Hi! Welcome to the Joy of Miracles.

To write is to uncover, to unhide, to bring to light, and express what is within. To share is the end of all private thoughts, all shame, all guilt, all pain and separation. Here is all Joy found at last! Writing helps us to repeat, focus, choose, and remember ideas. The purpose of this writing is healing for all of us.

This blog is inspired by "A Course in Miracles"and The Work of Byron Katie. You are invited to share your comments by clicking on the word "comment" at the end of each post. If you scroll way down there's a little info about me and also an archive of past writing you can view by clicking on the title. Thanks so much for visiting...

falling away

Truth is unfolding
step by step
in my mind
in a perfect order
unknown to me

the door simply opens
and behind it is clarity
and laughter

the door falls away
we see it was 
a preposterous thought
to believe that 
someone else must do something
or could affect our happiness
our deepest
in any way

we give so much thanks
that the ridiculous
is now seen for what it is

in light,

that Good!

if you argue with yourself
fight yourself
conflict with your heart's desire
saying that  what's true can't possibly be true
that you can't possibly be what you really are

that you  can't possibly be
  that Good
Infinite Love
All powerful
happy all the time
sourced by Something
so beautiful
and so loving
that only increasing happiness is possible

you will feel sick inside

the only way to be happy all the time
is to accept that 
you are Happiness

Happiness created you
eternally happy

you can't argue with Facts
By definition
facts are true

arguing has never proved anything
and it certainly hasn't proved happy

Happiness is

love, Joy

you're it

You're it!

you are  the leader of the world--your  world

everyone here
but echos you

your deepest thoughts
your deepest feelings
your every word

we all agree with you

if you doubt yourself, so will we
if you sing and dance in joy, so will we
if you hide in a corner, so will we

if you open up your heart completely
and have no fear to share your deepest thoughts
and feelings, so will we

if you are completely honest with yourself
and lay down your last weapon/lie,
the one you hold in your back pocket
"just in case" Love gets too close

so will we

the law of the universe is always....
you go first

BE all that makes your heart sing

and that's all you will ever experience.

in the Name of Freedom 
and Power,


the Whole Answer
the Whole Picture
is in my mind

the only place it could be

if something was outside us
we could not know it
we could not know of it

if we see it
it is in our mind

we can reach Total Freedom now

we let our mind
be open
once again
to All that is

Truth must include all the facts
and God is the Only Fact 

unless all we see is God/Joy
we have left out the only fact there is

love, Joy

"should" is the idea of death

who said it should be that way?

who said we should write in a straight line?
who said we should clean up our room?

who said we should do it now instead of tomorrow?

who said i shouldn't feel this way?


it is not true!
where is the proof that I should write in a straight line?
there is none!!!!!!


and I LOVE writing in all directions-- full of life and spontaneity--just the way ideas flow!

all shoulds are  a lie

its the mind
telling you over and over and over again

you should be different
that should be different
he should be different

someday hopefully things will be different

this is HELL!

you have everything you need to BE


You are perfect to be YOU
You are completely adequate to show up 
without any story

Simply being is enough
( it's without all the crap/attack)

that's what we are

It's completely what it is

there is nothing we SHOULD DO OR BE,
only what we love to do and be

so much gratitude to simply be what i am,

Monday, March 23, 2009


I don't attack me
i don't scare me
i don't frustrate me

attack has no effect


don't do it

it's not really me

it's just a thought
an untrue thought
a mistaken thought
an insane thought
a dead thought

wild idea
that is not true

i don't believe it anymore

I am Love

Love is incapable of the thought of attack

Love is Infinite
it includes all that is

I did not create Love
and there is nothing i can ever do to destroy it
or change it in anyway

remain Love

I am free

the void

nothing can ever fill the void

nothing can ever fill the void

nothing can ever fill the void

the void is mistaken perception

the void comes from thinking

that something outside yourself

could give you happiness

stop focusing on one special flower

thinking this is your happiness

God wills you have more Joy

God wills you have Everything

whatever is in front of you
is absolutely the best thing in the world
that could possibly be happening 

whatever it is 
it is our path to God


is the  moment to look at 

the obstacle we hold in front of God

I would stare directly into the eyes 
of self hatred

and see it for what it is

i would stare and stare and stare

and express and express and express

and listen and listen and listen

until i see the Love behind it  

i would look forward to it
knowing this is the only way

to Heaven

it's NEVER enough

if someone else holds it

if someone else/something else holds your happiness
you can never be satisfied
no matter 
how much they/it
give you

if you believe the lie

that you aren't Everything

that you aren't ALL JOY

right now

you will always see others as not giving you enough

all your problems have been solved

You are Infinite

emptiness is my Home

not knowing is  my Home

here am i free of all imagined ideas

i made up

here am i free of "me"

here is All given

only an empty mind/hand

has room to receive

and Joy/Abundance

rushes in



is everything i love

today we take away the cross

there is no more need

to take a body

which isn't ours/us

and nail it to a cross

nothing is accomplished

Spirit remains always

the gentleness it is

Spirit smiles
so lovingly
on all it sees

Joy is shining on all the hills
and valleys of our mind

where the body is not our home
it doesn't matter if it falls

where the body is not our home
is all happiness

the resurrection is simply remembering
we are not a body
we are free

 is everything i love

the purpose of everything

is joy:

the untangling of our thought

to leave the tangled backroads

the convoluted thinking

by which we arrived at this viewpoint

why wait for Heaven?
the Course/our Happiness asks us

it cheerfully sings!

happiness is now!

can't you see it?
dear Love,
stop messing around in that crap
Jesus Christ!
there's some Joy going on!
get your butt over here!

what is in front of your face
is your mind

what do you want to see/think right now?

Joy: gratitude for all THAT IS 


fear:  focusing on WHAT IS NOT/what is missing/lacking/the future

the Light is  here NOW

focus on your kindnesses
and not on your mistakes

focus on your brother's kindnesses
and not on his mistakes



thank You so much for being,

straight jacket

what do you believe is possible

in this moment?

this is your world!

today we let go

of our belief
our story
our picture
our straight jacket

of what is possible
in this moment

and  we ask for a miracle instead

we ask that our idea
be taken from us 
by the grace of God

and we open

to unknown

we open

to Reality beyond this world

where there is no end

to what is possible 

right NOW

love, Joy

show me!

we've been wrong about everything!

none of this is true

it's simply a charade

a wild thought

a story--a picture of a belief--acted out

now i see it

i would cherish those beliefs no more
i would let all beliefs go
and allow
what  is

allow all Joy to be revealed
to be shown to me

i would see no more shag carpet :-)))

i would choose a clean floor
for this play
wholly spotless
scrubbed clean
without a speck remaining
of what i made up

take away my glasses
that i can see without distortion
only that which is real
what i did not make up

i do not know the Joy i am
i do not know the Joy all is
i do not understand anything at all
i know nothing
i have no reference point for anything

this is safety
to finally 
lay down
everything you have 

how else could we ever feel Light?

hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah for grace!

behind us

we're not doing the thinking,

we're being thought.  (byron katie)

we're being thought

by Joy


let it be

see what is

i am cleaned out
from the inside out

from the bottom upward

we let thoughts of God rise/surface
to our awareness

we take off the lid
of everything we believe--
all shoulds, needs, wants

and let the truth of Joy

the truth of Laughter

the truth of reality

simply bubble up

a brand new space opens


care free

"if i cared,
i couldn't be the intimacy that i am.

a caring 
would take me away
 from the real...." (byron katie)

care about nothing
be pulled off center
away from home/peace
for nothing

simply be love

care about nothing
and see all the beauty 
that is now

"to exclude anything
that appears in your universe
is not love...
it doesn't exclude the monsters
it doesn't avoid the nightmare--
it looks forward to it,
because like it or not,
it may happen,
 if only in your mind."  bk

we LOVE the monster
because we KNOW
that behind it
is God

we would not runaway
but joyfully see
it is but a mask
and now is the great release from
all the ancient pain
we have been longing for forever

we love everything
because we are everything

every one of us is an exquisite
flower, friend and lover of all that is

OPEN is our mantra of joy

you'll always resurface

you can't


who You are

it might get denied
pushed down deep
and ignored

you might think
that You/God
don't exist

and only crap does

but in the end

only You are 
always there

the truth of Who you are

thrilled to be

and there's nothing you can do about it


Friday, March 13, 2009


Reality is my Home

today i would let all other ideas of Home fly away

there is only truth

there is only light

there is only peace

only here

do i live

imagination is not reality


are all invitations to think
that Home is outside myself

to think that Home and peace are not the same

i let the clutter
fall away

til only Truth remains

there is something so much bigger!!!!!!!

whatever you hold sacred in this life

whatever you see
however you see it

whatever is the thing in front of your face
that glows

or is rotten

that has been stuck to you forever

whatever rosy story
you have been imagining
will bring you joy

there is something soooooooooooooooooooooo
much bigger

we look thru the tiniest of lenses

thru a miniscule frame

of a paradigm

oh oh oh oh oh


we but rejoice to know

that something so much bigger than this crumb of

our understanding 


far far far beyond

of course there appear to be  mysteries from this tiny corner

of course
we must have faith
of course
we must let go of the darkness

be you free

so something soooooooooooooooooooooo
 much bigger

can be your experience

love, Joy

Angels never stop singing!!!!! 
(i must be one.....:-)))))

day or night

night or day

we close our eyes and ears 

to the world

and the song

is joyously playing

Heaven is always open

24 hours a day

anytime of the day or night

you can get up

and walk in

the light is ON

forever and ever and ever

the waitress is there to welcome you

the coffee is fresh

the company  is laughing and joking around

and it's ALL ON THE HOUSE!

the neon light glows
forever in our minds

God is Love

love you,

we are the lightness
 the fresh air
the space

we are the 
 the lightheartedness

of the world

we  journey 

what is light
but a twinkle in your eye
that comes from knowing

by experience
the truth?

our heart is lit
from within

now are we lighthearted
and lighthoused:

we are the safety of the world

our Heart
the Center
from which all nourishment goes out

is lit with humor
sending funny
and true 

to all those serious thoughts
sitting in the corner
too tired to move
moping in their rightness about reality

to all those bumper stickers that say
shit happens

we laugh
and say
thank God!

everywhere we look 
is the Holy Humorer

our only part
is to choose
instead of 

i love A Course in Miracles!!!!

hold on to nothing

we are loving what is
or we are asleep

awakeness is gratitude
sleep is sorrow

awake is not knowing
asleep we think we know

not knowing is opening
to the Infinite--to what is

beyond what we think we know

beyond what we can possibly imagine

 way beyond what we can possibly conceive

not knowing is the dissolving of the small mind

not knowing is the key to happiness

it unlocks the door/your beliefs

so the Infinite can expand you

we hold on to nothing
and God pours Himself into us

laughing all the way.....


About Me

My photo
I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1986. It has helped me tremendously to be a happier person by helping me change my perception of everything. I have found writing to be very helpful in the process of practicing, experiencing, and living the ideas in the Course. In 2006 I started sharing inspiration from the Course with a friend. Now it is a joy to share it with everyone. In 2009, The Work of Byron Katie found me at a woman's group. The Work is a way to identify and question your stressfuI beliefs. I dove right in and in April 2013 became a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. I work with people privately and offer online classes. Please visit for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver. For more information
